No tag at recess wasn't enough - now it's no touching in a Canadian school

Wrestling and Patty-cake may seem like recess staples for many kindergartners, but one Canadian school is enacting a “no-touch” rule for tykes on the playground.

According to a letter outlining the new rule at Coghlan Fundamental Elementary in British Columbia, “We will have a zero-tolerance policy with regards to hands-on play, resulting in the missing of playtime and trips to the office for those who are unable to follow the rules.”

The letter states that some contact games have led to injuries, and therefore kindergartners will no longer be allowed to touch each other while playing.
